The Viscount Team also won the "Spirit of Cricket" award as voted by the umpires and organisers, for displaying outstanding sportsmanship in the field.

A big thanks from Viscount Girls' Cricket team and coaches to ActivePost, Massey University, Palmerston North and Manawatu Cricket for hosting a great tournament, and to all the other girls' teams we played and met. See you next season!

[visitors are welcome to park in the large, rugby club carpark to the right of our school - There is a gate for pedestrians into the school about half way along the fence.]

Here is a gallery showing the exciting new learning space we're building:
